Change in the Weather, Change in the Title…

New cover, What do you think?

As you can see it has been almost a year since I announced the completion of my fictional memoir ” Leaving Cleveland.” What am I up to? Well, as one literary agent expressed ” You are a good writer and this is a good story and we would be interested in representing you BUT……you are not famous, yet.” He was absolutely right. Not to be deterred, I decided to go the self-publishing route. I am have researching the best way and have learned a lot about self-publishing and publishing on demand. The more I have learned the clearer it became that for this book it is the best way. I have been in contact with BookBaby and have gotten all their info and costs. I will be also applying for a grant through the college I teach photography , Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design. They award grants to help their faculty complete projects they are working on. If I do receive the grant, the wheels will be in motion and I hope to have this book out by early fall, just in time for the holiday season.

If you have been following my posts you will also notice that I have changed the title to Leaving Cleveland. When you follow the upcoming posts and read the book will make more sense. So please sign up for notices of new posts and tell your friends. If you are new to this blog , you can read some of the entries, although I will be submitting more entries in each new post as I keep you up to date with my experience of self publishing. I have also made a slight change to the cover, let me know what you think and if you have any suggestions. See if you can guess what the story is about by the cover….My goal is to post once a week and as things start to getting closer to publishing date even more.

Leaving Cleveland is off to the Publishers…

Hi Friends and Fans,

After 10 years, my book Leaving Cleveland is off to the publishers Boulder Point Publishing LLC. I can’t express the joy and relief I feel of accomplishing one of my life goals. As I had state almost 10 years ago, it was a story I had to tell that has been gnawing at me for a long time. I am so grateful for all the support from family and friends to create this book.

What’s next? I wait from the publisher to get back the revised cover for approval. Then I will receive the book and check for any changes that need to be made. Once that is all complete the book will be printed in hardback; paperback and digital for e-books and sold around the world wherever you can buy books.

I am going to make this short and open a bottle of champaign but please subscribe so you can receive the latest update, be entered into giveaways and excerpts from this book.
